Rehacking libtool to support a faster shell is a good idea.
But that should be done last after all the libtool shell syntax
is optimized and invocation of external programs is minimized.

A better idea is to perform some optimization of the world's least optimized shell ("bash"). An excellent feature of bash is that it offers so much room for performance improvement.

A little time in the profiler will quickly discover where bash is being slow and then someone can re-write that bit of the code to be more efficient. There has not been a release of bash for two years now. Hopefully someone is working on more than collecting bug-fix patches (39 official patches already!).
